Default Congrats To the Sheldons

Dragon would like the Thank you both for doing a outstanding job in Europe. You are both nuts like we used to be, running in 12' seas. Keep it up. Hopefully see you in Key West.
Scott

Race was in Portugal (Lisbon)
First place Saterday, only had to finish Sunday. finished the Grand Prix 2nd Overall
UIM P-1 World Champions.

Special Thanks to Grants Custom Rigging in Ft. Lauderdale , FL he rigged one hell of a Race Boat for Dragon and the Sheldons. By far the finest Rigger in the US.
Clean class act, check him out.

on the speedvision coverage of the formula one race in china they showed a clip of that boat and one of the f1 drivers getting to wheel it..... they mentioned it was a mercury racing 525 diesel engine....

other than that, good advertising for the sport....

It would be nice to have 2 Dragons in Key West running 1 and 2. Go for it. It can be done.

I can't never understand why these guys don't stand behind their work! Especially these days with the internet, news of bad customer service travels FAST! I too have heard good and bad things about Grant's work!
